This variety of yucca grows in a clump and offers an erect habit. Flowering is very spectacular: in mid-July, 1.50 meter flower stalks are adorned with magnificent white bell-shaped flowers.
Very decorative, its rosette foliage is made up of dark green leaves 40 to 80 centimeters long edged with curly white threads.
Yuccas in general appreciate a rather dry soil, well drained and in full sun exposure. The yucca filamentosa resists heat thanks to the threads arranged along its leaves which retain moisture.
